ignoble_prizeThe famous Ig Nobel Prizes will be announced tonight from Harvard University's Sanders Theatre at 7:30 PM eastern time. The prizes, which are a humorous spoof of the Nobel Prizes, are awarded to people who have "done something that first makes people laugh, then makes them think" by the science humor magazine Annals of Improbable Research. The prizes are awarded by genuine Nobel Laureates in front of an audience of 1200 spectators. You can watch a QuickTime internet broadcast of the event tonight beginning at 7:15 PM. Pictured right: 2004 Ig Nobel Peace Prize winner Daisuke Inoue -- the inventor of karaoke -- is serenaded by Nobel Laureates Dudley Herschbach (left), Richard Roberts and William Lipscomb, and by Karen Hopkin. Dr. Hopkin is, among other things, famed for creating the Studmuffins of Science Calendar. [Ed. note: The event is archived on the website for those who missed the live broadcast.]
